Amazing Buy One get One Free – Limited Time Only Room Deals

We like to offer our customers a little extra something from time to time and we’re excited about our latest plan – a limited time only code to buy one get one free on rooms – we thought if it worked for breakfasts maybe it could work for rooms too..😉

Look out for the code that will be heading to your inbox soon.

Book a night with us and get the next night free! Why not book yourself in for a pre-Christmas minibreak – you could get some shopping done in Brighton only 10 minutes away and treat yourself to a relaxing minibreak eating, drinking and maybe a bit of walking in the South Downs or a stroll around our thriving Sussex village and a visit to our award-winning Ditchling Museum of Arts and Crafts.
If you haven’t stayed with us before, you’re in for a treat. Our rooms are rated AA 5 * and we have recently added additional bedrooms and now have six beautiful individually designed rooms (including an interconnecting family suite), all with stunning bathrooms stocked with award-winning Cowshed organic spa products.

New Year


Maybe because it’s been such a beautiful Autumn that we don’t seem to mind the idea of getting ready for Christmas, cosying up by the fire and tucking into some festive food. We sent Chef Jack home early with his secret Christmas recipe book and he’s come up with a crack(er)ing party menu. Available from Friday 30th November until 24th December (inclusive) every day apart from Sunday – you’ll need to be a party of 6 or more and book in advance so it might be time to start getting your friends, family or work mates organised for some Christmas fun. You know what a nightmare it is with diaries the longer you leave it, best get a head start now.. Have a look at our Seasonal Party Menu herebook online at or 01273 843 147.

New Year

It puts a smile on our faces just thinking about our New Year’s Eve party here at the pub – even if we say so ourselves it’s always a great night. Now we have our new dining room we can offer the best of both worlds – a chance to book a table, eat and celebrate with friends and family and then join the dancing and let your hair down in the bar. The same as last year, we’re offering two sittings in the dining room – the later booking was very popular so make sure you get in quick if that’s the one you want.
Call us on 01273 843 147 or head online to book your table or just to buy your drinking and dancing tickets – the ticket price includes a welcome drink of your choice and live music.

We’ve added to our team but we’re still looking for chefs – £1,000 joining bonus

It’s been great to add some exciting new chefs to our team – although we are still looking for more at all levels. As an added extra we’re offering a £1,000 joining bonus to any new chef joining us – we know good chefs are in demand so we’re going the extra mile to get them! We’re an award-winning pub with great food, atmosphere and chefs will be working in a brand new kitchen – so if you know of a good chef who is looking to move let us know – or you are a good chef drop your CV in to

We’re all fired up!

Although the weather has been gorgeous – Philomena has decided it’s getting chilly enough in the evenings to light the fires. We’re not ones to argue with Philo so we just thought we’d share a picture of our fantastic roaring fires to tempt you in after a bracing Autumn walk … and sitting next to one of these is even better with a coffee, beer or red wine in your hand.

New Seasonal Menu Launch

We always get excited when the new menu arrives – our talented chefs really know how to make the most of the local produce on offer and Autumn means hearty plates of seasonal vegetables and strong flavours.

Our current team favourite new dishes are a warming pie of lentil and sweet potato with kale and roasted shallots or Harrissa spiced local lamb cutlets with pepper mousse, mint yogurt, aubergine and pomegranate. If there is something on the menu that you like the look of but have a food allergy or intolerance, please speak to the team as all our food is cooked to order so we can be flexible and we always have a Gluten Free menu available.
